Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. Cyril Connolly (1903 - 1974)


The Christmas Spirit - Kids - Season 4Ms #Music

I finally hauled the tree down and put it up. The kids came through the door on Thursday and gasped with happiness!
I don't feel any joy right now. Just so much sad and I do not understand why. Nor am I dwelling in there. I'm going about the joyful things of laughter, dance, music and life, but this sad is even making me cry. I really hate feeling so alone and almost bereft. Perhaps all the feelings are just a lie, so I'll keep doing and moving until it goes away.

Right now we are doing advent and the kids and I are enjoying this learning. I hope I can get them a gift.

We'll decorate it soon.

Kitty will learn to leave it alone....hopefully.

Are you excited for Christmas?

Welcome to Christmas music month on the Monday's Music Moves Me train!

I do believe in the magic of Christmas and wished it last all year and wished more than ever that it touched people's hearts and not the stress of gifting attaches to people today.

  1. I am so sorry that you are sad these days. The winter weather is a big factor for lots of people. I know some that just get sad around the holidays (starts at Thanksgiving and doesn't end until after the New Year.) Keep your head up... You are an AWESOME mom with 2 AMAZING kids. You have the best gifts right around you!
    Love you girl!
    Merry Christmas

    1. Thank you Noelle.
      I appreciate your care.
      I suppose soon it will go away, it's not welcome or entertained. *HUGS*

  2. It looks lovely Colette, I am not in the mood for it either my tree came out today but it's still bare LOL

    Nice track :-)

    Have a treetastic week

  3. Callie, I think the change in hormones contribute to those moody blues but I also know financial strains can make you feel that way, too. I think you're right to keep going, working through those moments to fight the blues away. What ever the culprit is, Satan will use it as ammo to shoot ya down to the ground! Stand tall in your faith. God will reward you. Hugs to you, my friend!

  4. Now you listen here young lady, I won't have none of this sad stuff goings on with the Christmas season being here. Rejoice my friend for the Blessed Mother brings you her son! It's time to celebrate the Lord and rejoice. Halleluyah!!! Praise the Lord! YES... Every Christmas is a Christmas to believe in! Love you my friend... see your love in the eyes of your children and the eyes of the Lord. Amen

  5. It looks lovely Colette. I can understand your feelings. Simply i can you are awesome Mom.

  6. My boys are helping me be excited for Christmas. They love decorating the tree

  7. Hope you are feeling a bit better, Christmas time can be a huge anxiety trigger for many

  8. Don't be sad!! Christmas time should be so dificult sometimes but we have to keep positive vibes around us.

  9. Aw hope you feel better hun. Christmas is difficult for me as well but it is important to keep our heads up xx

  10. The last few years it's been hard to get through the holidays. I hope you feel better and things get easier.

  11. Try to look around you and appreciate everything you had now. Xmas is all about love and joy, not just gift or money. Your children alone can best explain how lucky you are to have them.

  12. I hope you will feel better. Wish you a Merry Christmas!

  13. I can't believe we are a week away from Christmas!!! It is so much fun to get into the spirit, I can't wait for the rest of our festivities this year!

  14. I hope your feline friend has been able to resist the temptation offered by the Christmas tree! My challenge here is two grabby children under 5!

  15. I've been going through some things as well, I even decided I shouldn't put up a tree this year. Hopefully things are better in the future <3

  16. I'm so sorry you are feeling sad. I hope your mood is able to change soon! I like your tree.

  17. Sorry for your sad feelings. I am struggling a but too this season with changes in our home, but I have to say my kids are helping me to make the best of everything!

  18. I love the picture with the cat! Totally real!

  19. I'm totally in the Christmas spirit this year!!! I just love Christmas music too!!! It's the best

  20. I completely understand about going through the motions, but not truly feeling it. I am sad a lot too. My depression and anxiety likes to take over.

  21. I can totally relate, hope you feel better the soonest. I know things will get easier and will fall into right place. Focus on happy things.

  22. It is so hard to dealing with these emotions in our life. From my understanding of God we are not to rely on our feelings but to move forward. I do alot of praying for Gods help when I feel down. I will be praying for you. Thank you for sharing

    1. Thank you Linda. I really appreciate it.
